Influence of "Halo" and "Demon" Effects in Subjective Grading.
Gibb, Gerald D.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v56 n1 p67-70 Feb 1983
The phenomenon of "halo" effects in subjective grading was investigated. Two groups of three raters evaluated 20 term papers in introductory psychology. Term paper grades correlated significantly with course grades when information about previous academic performance was made available. When this information was not available, the correlation was negligible. (Author/RD)
